Neck Lift Surgery in Dubai

A neck lift, also known as a lower rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to reduce the signs of aging on the neck and jawline. This procedure may involve removing excess skin, tightening loose skin, and possibly repositioning or removing some of the underlying fat in the neck area. The primary goal is to reduce skin sagginess on the neck and potentially improve the appearance of the jowls, contributing to a more youthful and defined jawline.

Ideal Candidate

A good candidate for a neck lift in dubai is someone:

  • Who is generally healthy without severe medical conditions that could impair healing.
  • Having excess fat under the jaws and on the neck.
  • Who has realistic expectations regarding the treatment and its results

In addition, you can be a good candidate for a neck lift if the appearance of your neck is affected by unattractive fullness. This treatment can help address issues such as a turkey neck, deep creases, and wrinkles on the neck, though individual results may vary.

What Are The Benefits Of A Neck Lift?

A neck lift surgery in dubai can offer the following potential benefits:

  • It typically provides results that are long-lasting.
  • The results can be more dramatic and potentially longer-lasting than those of non-surgical procedures for neck rejuvenation, though individual results may vary.
  • Adhering to a healthy and active lifestyle may contribute to a smoother recovery.
  • It can often be combined with other facial rejuvenation treatments for a more comprehensive aesthetic effect, depending on individual circumstances.

How to Prepare For a Neck Lift?

To help you prepare for a neck lift surgery, your doctor may ask you to:

  • Get medically evaluated with lab tests and other diagnostic procedures.
  • Take certain medications.
  • Stop smoking.
  • Stop taking blood-thinning medications, like aspirin and ibuprofen, and herbal supplements.

How is a Neck Lift Performed?

A neck lift in dubai is usually performed under general anesthesia. However, the choice between general anesthesia and local anesthesia with sedation is typically based on the procedure’s extent and the patient’s health and preferences. The procedure typically involves incisions under the chin or behind the ears, and in some cases, incisions may extend in front of the ears.

Neck lifts are performed through various methods. The main treatment techniques are as follows.


Cervicoplasty involves removing excess skin and, in some cases, fat from the neck and chin area. This procedure is performed through incisions under the chin and behind the ears. After making the incisions, the surgeon removes the excess tissues and tightens the skin, addressing issues like skin laxity, jowls, and a double chin. Cervicoplasty may be recommended for individuals whose neck appearance is affected by factors such as aging or moderate weight loss, not exclusively extreme weight loss.


Platysmaplasty primarily involves tightening the platysma muscle, a broad sheet of muscle that extends from the collarbone to the lower jaw. During this procedure, the surgeon makes incision near the sideburns and around the ear. This incision allows fat removal, tissue repositioning, and tightening of the platysma muscle. In some cases, excess skin may also be removed to address skin laxity. This treatment effectively reduces the appearance of a turkey wattle and, in some cases, a double chin.


Liposuction can improve the appearance of the neck by removing excess fat primarily from under the chin, and in some cases, around the jawline. During this procedure, a surgeon makes a small incision, typically under the chin, and inserts a cannula to break up and remove excess fat. The fat is then removed through suction. This treatment is ideal for individuals who have a double chin caused by excess fat under the chin.

Sometimes, the surgeon may combine two or all of these techniques when drastic changes are required.

Post-Op Care

Practicing good post-op care helps ensure smoother recovery and desirable outcomes of the neck lift. Your surgeon may give you the following instructions to adhere to:

  • Get plenty of rest for the period specified by your surgeon.
  • Keep the incision area clean and disinfected.
  • Maintain a balanced diet to support healing.
  • Take medications only prescribed by your doctor.
  • Avoid smoking and alcohol.
  • Begin light walking as soon as it is comfortable and safe to do so, to help reduce swelling and promote circulation.
  • You may need to take off from work for approximately one to two weeks, depending on the nature of your job and the extent of the surgery.
  • Avoid strenuous physical activities for 3-4 weeks.

Recovery and Results

After a neck lift, it is common to experience bruising, swelling, and pain, which typically subside within two to four weeks. The extent of pain and swelling varies based on individual factors and the specifics of the surgery performed. The results are usually visible a few weeks after the procedure, even with some residual swelling.
While most swelling typically subsides within two to four weeks after surgery, complete resolution of swelling may take up to several months. This is when the new contours of the neck become more noticeable.

How Much Does a Neck Lift Cost in Dubai?

The cost of a neck lift in Dubai starts from around 25,000 AED. The final cost of this treatment can vary based on several factors, including:

  • The complexity of the individual’s condition and the specific techniques used
  • The specific surgical technique chosen
  • The cost of anesthesia
  • The surgeon’s expertise
  • “The geographical location and the reputation of the clinic or treatment facility

Neck Lift FAQs

Should I expect scars after the procedure?

While an experienced surgeon can minimize scarring, some scarring is inevitable, though it typically fades over time. However, minor scars are common and typically fade over time. Recovery time varies, but typically, 2 to 3 weeks are required for initial recovery from this procedure.

How long does a neck lift last?

The results of a neck lift typically last for about 10-15 years, but this can vary based on individual factors such as skin quality and lifestyle.

Is a neck lift very painful?

A neck lift usually involves small incisions and doesn’t cause much pain. However, you may experience some discomfort due to the tightness and soreness in the treated region. That said, some people may experience more than normal pain. If you experience more pain than expected, it's important to contact your surgeon to ensure there are no complications.
